Although there are many reasons to study an Apprenticeship, we have come up with our top 5 reasons why you should consider an Apprenticeship as a way to kick start your career. For many, the Apprenticeship route isn’t an obvious choice but for people who are eager to kickstart their career, Apprenticeships are the way forward.

Earn whilst you learn

Our first one is probably the most obvious! Unlike other opportunities, you are earning money at the same time as studying for your qualification. The minimum apprenticeship wage is £3.40 per hour, but many Apprentices earn significantly more. Just remember that as your experience grows, so will the amount of money you earn! Plus you are not getting yourself into the debts of University.

Relevant experience

You are going to learn from industry experts which will give you hands on experience from a relevant source. This means that in the future when you are looking to develop your career, you will have relevant experience to guide you forward. The modules in your Apprenticeship will provide you with the essential knowledge and the structured programme will coach you through the skills that you need to be successful.

Building contacts

In any industry, it is so important to build your contacts. Throughout your Apprenticeships, you will meet many people within your business and externally that will help shape your career. Making a great name for yourself and building business contacts will benefit you massively in the future so make sure that you are making the most of opportunities. Apprenticeships typically take between one and three years to complete, depending on the type of Apprenticeship and the level. In this time, you will make relationships and contacts with clients, colleagues, and managers.

Nationally recognized qualification – Whilst you are getting experience, you will also be gaining a nationally recognized qualification which you can carry forward to many other pathways. We offer qualifications from Level 2 all the way to Level 7.

Guidance and support

We will make sure that you are set up for your Apprenticeship including CV workshop support, interview masterclasses and any extra guidance that you need.
